Move over, Cthurkey, there’s a new tentacled foodstuff to haunt your meal.
Brought to us by master fruit-carver, Valeriano Fatica, the scary watermelon will call to you for a proper picnic. See how it’s done below.
Why did the watermelon cross the road? Because it was the protagonist in a linear video game trying to escape, of course.
Officially titled, The Story of the Revolutionary Watermelon That Wanted to Live Free as a Bird and Learned How to Escape, this online game sees our brave watermelon rolling and hopping across roads and creepy forests. What is the watermelon escaping from? An evil summer picnic? Is Gallagher in town? We shall never know.
Nevertheless, the watermelon is controlled by tapping the space bar. That is unless you’d prefer to use an actual watermelon controller, which can be done with an Arduino custom circuit and code, and requires you to slap the real watermelon to control your digital one.
Using layers of pink velvet cake for the innards, Yolanda then paints the outside to look just like the real thing. The best part is, the usually inedible rind is made of buttercream, and the pits are chocolate chips. So, no part will go uneaten.
See the story behind it in the video below.
It’s summer… so you probably have a slice of watermelon in one hand and a popsicle in the other at all times.
The Pepo Watermelon Slicer will create popsicle-shaped slices of watermelon, making them easier to eat and reducing mess. It will also free up one of your hands to do other summery things, like lighting fireworks or pointing angrily at the sun. Check it out here.
Just in time for summer, and while Game of Thrones is still fresh in our noggins, here comes one of the greatest watermelon sculptures ever.
Brought to us by artist, Valeriano Fatica, the Watermelon Dragon emerges from its fruit-shell so convincingly, that it will surely be able to scare off the bravest of hobbit, or to just have a picnic with the Khaleesi. See more below.
